The Wake School board has been complaining about their recent budget problems. Yet they’ve got an “Office of Equity Affairs” with a budget of $204,846 and is headed up by David Trice who’s getting paid $125k. Then there’s the “Strategic Plan” which has cost taxpayers to date over $58k. Small wonder there are budget issues in Wake County Schools — administrative bloat has been a factor for years now and shows no signs of stemming.

The Wake County School Board, along with Superintendent Merrill, want to hike taxes to pay for their own county’s teacher raises.
Let’s keep a social justice office on the books and pay someone 125k to run it while a lawsuit related to said office is ongoing in Wake County. Coincidence I’m sure.
